President's Report

I hope everyone is well and safe.  We are looking forward to the day when we can all be together again. 

 May 19, 2020 Monthly Meeting

Our May meeting will be held virtually.  We are pleased to have Mindy Blake from Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) speak to us.  Mindy’s topic is Why is Transportation Important to us All.  The meeting will be held from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm. Please register for the meeting so we have an idea of how many participants will be on the video/call.  We will be using WebEx to conduct the meeting and the call-in number and code can be found in the meeting information in the newsletter and on the website.   

2020  BOMA International Conference

The 2020 Boma International Conference originally scheduled for June 26th -28th in Philadelphia has been canceled due to COVID 19.    BOMA International will be holding a virtual conference July 7th – 9th  with 20 live sessions which we can attend.  The cost for the virtual conference is $225.00.  We will disseminate more details about the conference as they become available. This may be a good opportunity to take advantage of the education being offered this year with reduced conference fees, airline tickets and hotel expenses.   

Coronavirus Resource Center

BOMA of Greater Tucson includes in our mission statement the collection, analysis and dissemination of information.  BOMA International is a great resource for information and on their website has a Coronavirus Resource Center with guidance documents, webinars and articles regarding COVID 19 and how we can all stay well and safe as we begin to lift the Stay at Home orders.  We have added a link to our home page for easy access.  

June Meeting

As of today, we do not know if we will be able to meet together as a group.  Once we have updated information we will send out an e-blast.  In the meantime, we will be sending out a survey next week inquiring how we want to proceed with our meetings this summer and what will make our members feel safe.  Your input is important so please take a few minutes to respond once you have the survey.    

Stay Well and again, we look forward to when we can be together.

Think BOMA First!

CARES Act Analysis
In response to the growing COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. Congress passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act on March 27, 2020. This historic bill, the third legislative response to COVID-19, provides more than $2 trillion for economic relief to businesses and individuals, as well as much-needed resources to state and local governments. BOMA International’s advocacy staff has itemized the  measures that may affect your businesses, your employees and your tenants. A comprehensive document detailing these measures can be found here.
